Australia / Australia,Victoria Goodall
« on: Monday 26 July 21 09:08 BST (UK)  »
Asking for someone linked to me by DNA & shared matches, probably via 18th C Donisthorpe/Thompson/Pritchard line, about :

________Goodall, d. in Victoria, husband of Ethel Hilda Victoria Humble 1881-1919.
Their son John Terrell Goodall 1917-92 married Margaret Ellen Sherwin b 1916.
Her parents were John Horton Sherwin 1888-1960 and Margaret Amelie Hagens 1890-76

Sibling of __ Goodall may have gone to US.

Grateful for any hints that I can pass on.

Australia / Australia/Van Diemen's Land: Mrs Wardley 1870s
« on: Thursday 04 March 21 11:27 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone know of Wardleys who had a child/relative/ward at boarding school in Hackness, Yorkshire, run by Robert Turnbull, and visited Hackness, nr Scarborough from Tasmania?

In 1877 Robert (husband of Mary Watson of Scalby) writes to inform his nieces of his Golden Wedding and mentions that he has had no reply (to his gift of £10) from Mrs Wardley in Australia, who wants to return to England. His nephew Robert Hope had emigrated to Melbourne c 1863 but had died a few years later.

Lancashire / Mary Ellen Thompson 1810-1872
« on: Saturday 13 February 21 10:01 GMT (UK)  »
Born 27.10.1810 Fleet Street London, d. 1872 West Ham
Posting under 'Lancashire' as that is where my grandfather, a descendant, lived.(Born London 1869, d. Llangollen c 1951)

My main printed information on the Thompson/Pritchard line came from N. Spence: would love to reconnect if anyone knows of him.
I have some hand-written notes by Mary Ellen's father Thomas Thompson (b.1777) on births, christenings etc.

DNA results have come up with some links to Australia (George Thompson Pritchard).

Norfolk Completed Look up Requests / Suffolk/Norfolk area Fuller & Morris

Lucy Fuller b.1768 Reedham,married William Morris of Belton (b.1778?) in 1796.Their daughter Martha was born the previous year. Lucy had an older sister, also Martha.
Lucy Morris, widowed c 1839, was living with her nephew 'John Morris' in 1841 and 1851.Does anyone know his parents? I found Martha (née Rolfe),but discounted her.
If 'John' is also 'John William', b.1822, husband of Mary Ann Smith of Yarmouth, then he is a direct ancestor.
Another William Morris (b. 1804, Hopton) married Mary Ann Fuller (b. 1801) in Raveningham on 6th December 1825 (which is a baptismal date for a John Wm Morris)and had a daughter Elizabeth c 1828 but a couple of pages on, the wife's name is Elizabeth.
There were 3 girls named Fulleretta. One became Neslen,the other, Fairhead and my gt-grandfather's sister died in infancy.
